  •  Thanks for getting this idea on the rec list (10+ / 0-)

    I've been putting the environmentalist angle out on the  blogs for awhile, posting things like this:

    If this passes, let's get environmen­talists to descend upon Mississipp­i, closing down every polluting industry in the state on behalf of fertilized eggs. It's well known that toxins such as mercury and lead in the environmen­t adversely affect fetal developmen­t and can cause miscarriag­e, so "corporate people" should be held liable for damages to "fetal people," right?

    If we only make it about women's rights, the right-wing won't give a hoot, but hit 'em in the wallet and they'll drop this 'personhoo­d" thing like it's on fire. Should be interestin­g, if we play our cards right.

    Good to see the idea finally hitting the "big time."  If it passes, let's all pitch in to make it about big industry.

    God hates FAQs, so stop asking why bad things happen to good people!
